new Locky(options)

Create a new locky client with some options.

redis

Type: Object or Function

If you specify an object, the properties will be used to call redis.createClient method.

new Locky({
  redis: {
    port: 6379,
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    connect_timeout: 200
  }
})

If you specify a function, it will be called to create redis clients.

var redis = require('redis');
 
new Locky({
  redis: createClient
})
 
function createClient() {
  var client = redis.createClient();
  client.select(1); // Choose a custom database.
  return client;
}

ttl

Type: Number

Define the expiration time of the lock in ms. Defaults to null (no expiration).

new Locky({
  ttl: 2000
})

locky.lock(options, [callback])

Lock a resource for a locker.

If the resource was already locked, you can't lock it but by passing force: true.

locky.lock({
  resource: 'article:23',
  locker: 20,

}).then(function (locked) {
  console.log(locked); // true the lock has been taken
